‘This too shall pass’ appears in multiple cultures, including Persian and Jewish. At the heart of the different stories is often a monarch charging his wise men to come up with a sentence that would be true and appropriate in all times and situations.
It remains an apt phrase, consoling us in tough times that whatever our situation there will be brighter days.
When we are joyful, it’s a phrase that reminds us to treasure that time.
Change is indeed a constant. Sometimes we need an extra reminder that grey skies will give way to blue skies.
